Philosophy

Since 1968 our goal has been straightforward: help clients get their life back on track and achieve a life of sobriety, free from drug use and symptoms of mental illness. A life that is productive, socially responsible, and healthy. Gateway Foundation is the largest nonprofit treatment provider in the U.S. specializing in substance use disorders for men, women, adolescents, and clients diagnosed with co-occurring mental health disorders. Gateway's professional clinicians support over 6000 people a day to successfully complete treatment by developing a personalized plan to treat the underlying causes of substance use disorder —not just their addiction to drugs or alcohol.

The ability to break down that barrier and get one to finally open up, I thought was the most effective.

The counselors were great and there was a very positive atmosphere. However, they need improvement in sticking to plans. I was there for drug addiction and I would not be alive if it weren't for the people here.

Strong emphasis on relapse prevention and mindfulness. Extensive outpatient program. Little to no opportunity for women to have physical activity.

Excellent
The counselors that had been addicts at one time were very informative, and really made you look at yourself and think about things in new ways. The food was not bad at all and the rooms were pretty decent. The groups and activities really helped to make you think and find new ways to express yourself. Some of the counselors didn't really understand or know what we were going through and could never understand what this life is like. Not enough outside time.

It is a womens and mens facility, so you are limited in where you can go. They made me feel like a prisoner when I was there.

The facility has a strong management team providing solid clinical and financial leadership and encouraging a team approach among the clinical and support staff members. The curriculum and experience and expertise of the staff are of excellent quality. Limited amount of funding from the state of Illinois in order to help patients who are unable to afford treatment on their own. It is an excellent program with the highest clinical quality.
